Pregnancy and Birth Injuries

If you are expecting a child it is important to understand the risk factors during pregnancy and at birth.  The most common injuries that occur during pregnancy are brain development injuries due to lack of oxygen or infection and fetal alcohol syndrome.  The most common causes for these are maternal medical conditions, taking certain medications while pregnant, smoking or taking recreational drugs, genetic defects and family history, and pregnancies after age 34.

The most common birth injuries are caused by failure to perform a timely C-section, failure to diagnose and treat fetal infections, improper use of birth tools, which can cause developmental and physical damage, and lack of oxygen, such as cutting the umbilical cord too soon or umbilical cord compression.
